Sadly, due to COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the tough decision was made to cancel or postpone all Leadership Immersion Programs and Investor trips for 2020 in order to protect the health and safety of our Animators and village partners around the world. Shortly after we made this decision, the Australian Government, along with many governments around the world, closed borders to international travel for the foreseeable future.
On behalf of THP Australia, we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our Animators who were scheduled to depart on Programs in 2020 for your contribution and dedication to The Hunger Project. We are extraordinarily proud of the efforts of every individual Animator, and as a collective, you have already made an immense impact on the end of hunger and poverty globally. We cannot wait to re-embark on your journey with you when our programs take place, once it is deemed safe to travel again. Until then you can stay connected to the work of THP by jumping online to hear directly from our experts in India and Africa here.
As we continue through this time of uncertainty, we stand with all of our Animators in Australia and across the world, their families, and communities who have been affected by the ongoing impact of COVID-19.
If you or someone you know would like to express interest in joining one of our next Leadership Immersion Programs, you can do so by completing this form or contacting Hannah.Ryan@thp.org and we can notify you when our programs open back up.
Also – save the date for Tuesday 23 June 7-8pm AEST! We invite you to join us for our first ever national online gathering exclusively for the Animator Collective community. Details to follow, keep an eye on your inbox!
